They have built a curriculum to match their context and meet their learners’ needs, including ensuring that their students meet inspirational role models; build cultural capital for their lives in Modern Britain; and recognise themselves within their learning.
- Reshma Mathurasingh, Co-Head of Drama, Park View School, Tottenham. The students at Park View School are from a very diverse demographic and there are many different languages spoken at the school. One of the school’s objectives is to erase any racism. Reshma is part of the anti-racist group and has been employing and embedding many strategies for the decolonisation of the Drama curriculum.
